About Kessingland

Is the jewel in the crown. 3 miles south of Lowestoft. It is our premier kite zone on the east coast. It’s also KiteboardingUK’s/WDCouncils approved teaching/ kite zone. This is a scrub, barren beach of huge proportion and can accommodate many kiteboarders, comfortably.

 

Works on all winds from north to east to south. Forget the SW winds,

Can sometimes work well on some north westerlies but not too often.

In the summer, sea breezes galore. If the wind is forecast south westerly or any other southerly direction, on the hot summer you will be guaranteed a 12mph to 14mph sea breeze of a southerly direction. It will actually turn and bend those forecast SW wind into southerly. And the sea breezes this year are working already in May. We have just had some classic mellow sessions with 17- 20m kites.

 

Anything with westerly is generally gusty and poor, blowing offshore.

 

Good points:

No wooden groyne sea defences, its all kite zone with a large shallow pool which forms at low tide its about 3 x the size of Lowestoft’s low tide pool and is perfect for beginner to intermediates, great for flat water riding. Kessingland also has a well documented surf spot with some great sandbars its slightly further down from the kite training zone, producing classic wave conditions. When the swells are up and the wind is right we are on it.

Very few tourists, dog walkers, just kiters, friends and family.

Its patrolled by a beach warden, keeping the law! And is watched closely by a coastguard watch tower just north of the beach.

KiteboardingUK.com has its club day here on Sunday’s weather permitting, with free Jet Ski assistance for beginners.

There are strict rules and regulations for kiteboarding at this location. Check out KiteboardingUK.com for more info.
